Though there's no doubt that Jer's technical abilities were relatively limited in the late '60's, I find this era to be some of his most absolutely enthralling playing. Someone said of these years in a review once that it just "sucks you in", which I think is the perfect description. While i love all his beautiful, mellow, jazzy playing of later, these years just have an unprecedented energy that was never duplicated imo.

That said, I still think his best solos were in '73 and '74 (please don't make me pick between the two, I just can't!)

haha, well i think you could really say all of '72-'74, but I just think Jer's playing got a little jazzier and more melodic in '73. but that's just me, of course...
